Mail Server Configuration

Question

For the Postfix Mailserver there there is in the file /etc/postfix/main.cf that is instructed to be created:

 

## General Postfix configuration

# should be the default domain from your provider eg. "server100.provider.tld"

mydomain = froxlor.syshost.com

 

# should be different from $mydomain eg. "mail.$mydomain"

myhostname = froxlor.syshost.com

 

Where the system-hostname was set to "froxlor.syshost.com."

 

The Froxlor created text for this file is contrary to the instructions within this text that "mydomain" be made different from "myhostname". If this was intended there needed to be a warning to the admin setting this up, just as there is for "MYSQL_PASSWORD", because it is easy to miss.

 

Does $myhostname have to be a subdomain of $mydomain such as mail.froxlor.syshost.com or could it be a different subdomain than $mydomain such as mail.syshost.com?

Either a subdomain or a different (sub-)domain is possible there.
